Murray River Walk

Explore Australia’s greatest river, The Murray, within the internationally recognised Riverland Ramsar Wetland in South Australia. Guided walking combined with peaceful cruising immerses you in the landscape and reveals the pioneering history of paddle steamers and a new environmental stewardship. Our walking guests will encounter diverse wildlife and waterbirds along the river, creeks and old oxbow lagoons that meander through ancient redgum forests dwarfed by spectacular red ochre coloured cliffs.

Enjoy a pre-breakfast dawn hike along the cliffs and watch the sunrise of the Murray River on one morning to start your day. The daily walking routes are on private property and conservancy areas with exclusive access for Murray River Walk guests only. Walk on three of the four days, with the final day offering the opportunity to cruise the river, go through a lock, finish up with a lunch celebration at the award winning Wilkadene Woolshed Brewery.

Spend three nights on a modern houseboat that cruises to your daily walking destination, complete with hot shower and top deck spa overlooking the river. Take a swim off the back of the boat or dip your feet into the cool flowing water at sunset. Savour three course dinners each night created from local food and wine showcasing the produce of the Riverland food bowl. This is a relaxing way to enjoy the beautiful Riverland region, to understand the importance of the river system and to experience birdlife at its very finest.
